LATEST REPORT FROM RENEWI
I am delighted to report we have had no new fly complaints this year and that with continued monitoring and increased measure for fly management the fly levels remain low across the site. We will continue to implement this plan throughout the coming months to ensure the fly numbers remain low.
The team will continue to work with the Fairview Estate team to ensure any concerns are dealt with and regular fly liaison meetings have resumed this year with face to face meetings in a Covid safe manner.
We will continue to keep you informed of progress with any projects on site, in the meantime if you would like to contact us, you can do so on 01708 634540, or by email to Gurjeet.Kaur-Assi@renewi.com
Projects awaiting completion.
Fairview Industrial Park – Asset Review of the Footway & Carriageway Network Throughout the Estate.
As you are aware the Estate has been surveyed, and the infrastructure has been categorized with immediate and longer – term maintenance works.
We had planned to commence addressing the highest priority items early in 2021 and had aimed to work through all of the identified defects over the coming 24 months. However, due to adverse weather conditions late January 2021, and the ongoing Covid-19 restrictions, there have been unavoidable delays.
A meeting was held at the end of April 2021 and works were identified, prioritized, and will hopefully be undertaken in July/August 2021. Formal notification of the date/time frame for the works will be provided in due course.
THIS PROJECT SUCCESSFULLY ACHIEVED 50% MATCH FUNDING FROM THE LONDON RIVERSIDE BID
Safety Improvement Scheme – Pedestrian Crossing to the North of the Estate/ Security Gatehouse
Businesses may have noticed when exiting the Estate that it is not uncommon for pedestrians to walk on the road, and concerns have been raised regarding this practice by a number of businesses on the Estate.
Historically, Marsh Way did not have the sharp bend that now exists but instead continued straight, with good lines of sight, and as such a single footpath (located on the East side of the entrance road) was presumably deemed appropriate. However, when the A13 was constructed, the current Marsh Way, with the sharp bend, was installed, and as such the “shortest” route for pedestrians onto / out of the Estate is to walk up or down the exit lane.
Due to the steepness of the banks on the West side of the entrance to the Estate, it is economically impractical to install a footpath on this side, however we feel that it is important to provide a safe option for pedestrians to cross the road and access the footpath on the East side.
We confirm that Consultants have completed a Feasibility study and the best option to improve safety and provide a safer pedestrian route onto the Estate has been decided upon.
A design was sent to various contractors inviting them to quote for the works, and an extremely competitive quote was obtained from a local contractor who hopefully will undertake the works in July/August 2021.
Formal notification of the date/time frame for the works will be provided in due course.

SECURITY GATEHOUSE DEFIBRILLATOR
Our thanks go out again to the British Heart Foundation, and the London Riverside BID for their 50% match grant funding towards a community defibrillator.
Together We Can Save Lives
As you are probably aware the BID successfully secured grant funding towards a defibrillator which is now installed at the Security Gatehouse on the Fairview Industrial Park, with thanks to the British Heart Foundation.
Since installation, the defibrillator has been called out by businesses or the emergency services; but thankfully it has not been needed and all individuals concerned are well, however it is there for peace of mind.
Remember, that for a patient to have the best chance of surviving an out of hospital cardiac arrest, CPR and early defibrillation must be provided within the first 3-4 minutes of the cardiac arrest, followed by advanced life support within the first 8 minutes of the arrest.
If you ever need the defibrillator, it is located at the entrance to the Estate at the Security Gatehouse. Simply call the Security Projects team on 07528 968073. ALWAYS CALL 999 FIRST

Some BID members have also made their defibrillators available to other BID Members, including Fairview neighbours ESS Safeforce and CEME:
FREE COVID MOBILE TESTING UNIT (MTU) – MARSH WAY (OPPOSITE BARLOW WAY)
AT THE REQUEST OF THE LONDON BOROUGH OF HAVERING WE HAVE CIRCULATED THE EMAIL/PHOTOGRAPH BELOW.
My name is Joanne Ellery, I am business liaison for London Borough of Havering.
We are a running a new COVID MOBILE TESTING UNIT (MTU) which will travel around industrial estates in Havering providing fast, free Lateral flow tests on site for tenants, staff and customers.
I am really excited to announce that we will be launching our mobile unit on Wednesday 23rd of June 2021 from 9am to 3pm and weekly thereafter at the Fairview Industrial Park, our bus will be located in Marsh Way (Opposite Barlow Way)
Everyone is welcome to come along to be tested, the tests take a few minutes, are extremely easy, and you will receive your results back in half an hour.
To help and support the easing of lockdown the government guidelines encourage people to test twice weekly, this helps to break the transmission of covid as 1 in 3 people can have covid and not display any symptoms.
We will also have free home testing kits on our bus which you can collect if you wish to test from home.
We look forward to meeting you all on Wednesday.

Wildflower planting brings Marsh Way Roundabouts to life with a burst of colour…
It’s just over a year since the London Riverside BID’s joint project with Havering Council to beautify the Marsh Way roundabouts was stopped in its tracks by the first lockdown.
The BID commissioned landscape architects Untitled Practice to create a planting scheme sympathetic to the natural environment and designed to provide a haven for insects and wildlife, especially bees.
This year’s late summer, which was followed by a long dry spell looked like it might overwhelm the young plants, but the most recent rain has helped them burst into life, with a showy display of yellow’s, purple’s, oranges and whites. The moths and bees are in a little Rainham refuge of heavenly scents and pollen, working away in amongst the madness of the trucks and vehicles that surround their small island paradise.
The seeds will scatter, carried in the wind and by insects, and so we will hopefully see this mini landscape gently replicated outside our front doors, and along verges and A-roads.
The established perennials should flourish every year now, with the summer paint pallet fading into autumnal stems and grasses, providing architectural interest and needing a cut-back just once in the winter to prepare them for their spring rejuvenation.
If you would like to know more about the plants that have been used please contact Olga Astaniotis at the London Riverside BID firstname.lastname@example.org
